Comments about Mens Brooks Transcend 4 Running Shoe:

The first time buying these for my husband who is not a runner but just wanted a supportive, highly cushioned shoe for long walks. He has a wide toe box and I was worried this brand might not fit him, but he says they are fine and no problems. He is very pleased with the arch support and cushioning of this shoe. It is getting harder to find dark/black running shoes that are not bright. These would be perfect in appearance if the bottom was black instead of white, in my opinion.

Comments about Mens Brooks Transcend 4 Running Shoe:

I haver been running in Kayano'so for as long as I can remember. Until they came out with the 23. Narrow toe box and not as much fore front cushioning. Someone turned me on to the Brooks Transcend 4. They are amazing. Ran a half in them last week. No legal pain at all. Just bought my second pair.

    Comments about Mens Brooks Transcend 4 Running Shoe:

    Great cushioning and stability control. I'm on the heavier side (5'8" 190 lbs.) and over-pronate pretty severely; running about 40 miles/week right now. I had the first generation of the Transcend, which I loved, then tried a couple different Hoka models, which were just too narrow. Returned home to Brooks for the Transcend 4, and it's a great upgrade to the original--it doesn't feel like it's trying to correct my pronation, it just lets me run naturally and still offers excellent support, and the cushioning has been amazing for long road runs. Fit is great, although I have to play with the lacing a little bit or it's really easy to cinch the laces too tight at the top and squeeze the top of my foot/ankle, but my heel sits firmly in the shoe and there's no sliding around. The top of the shoe on the inside of the ankle may come up a little too high for some--it took me a little getting used to, but it seems to have broken in or at least doesn't bother me anymore. The shoe feels a lot lighter on my feet than the weight/size would seem to indicate. And, like another reviewer mentioned, I don't normally buy running shoes based on the look/color, but it never hurts to look good while you're running and the red/blue "superman" coloring is pretty cool. I'll probably buy another pair of these when this one wears out--hopefully they'll be discounted by then!

    Comments about Mens Brooks Transcend 4 Running Shoe:

    The shoes looked better to me in person than online and I was pleasantly suprised. I am slightly flat footed and when I first put them on I felt like the were poking me a bit in the arch and was ready to stick them back in the box. I wore them for 20 minutes in the house and changed my mind as my foot sunk in. They have very strong stability and excellent cushioning particularly in the heels. It feels like you are rolling your foot straight and slightly downhill. When I actually ran in them they felt awesome. They are now my favorites and better than my kayano 23. I am running 15-20 miles a week and I am 205lbs. I also wear them crosstraining at orange theory and the stability works well.

        I was a big fan of the Transcend 2, but these are a great upgrade. Ride feels light and effortless with stable foot control. I previously ran in Kayano 21's but shoe felt "too squishy." The Transcend 4's are the best running shoes I have ever owned. Expensive, but worth it.

        I had been a huge fan of ASICS (Kayano) and Happy with all other ASICS (Kinsei, Nimbus & etc.) I owned until I tried this pair. Transcend 4 beats every one of those ASICS pairs and I am wondering if there will be any better running shoes for me.

        However, Ghost and Adrenaline did not feel too comfortable to me but I'd like to try Glycerin for a training pair.

          I'm an avid runner, but I am a bigger runner (6'2", 230 lbs). I have always worn the Ghost line of shoes by Brooks but lately I have had ankle and foot pain (over pronation issues) so I decided to try a stability shoe. The Transcend has been such a blessing!! I have very little discomfort now and have been able to up my mileage a great deal since switching to this shoe. It is surprisingly light for a shoe with so many stability features and cushioning.

          Comments about Mens Brooks Transcend 4 Running Shoe:

          I had recently been having some aches and pains in my knees, so I went to RRS and got a Shoe Dog just to check in. I didn't know if maybe my gait had changed, age was taking a toll on me, or if I just needed to switch it up. They confirmed that I was still a stability 5, which means that the Kayano series I have been wearing for the past 8 years would be in line. I know my body and I knew it was time for a change. I asked for the top 3 recommendations that would compare to the Kayano and the Transcend was the top pick. Out of the box, the Transcend felt just as plush as the Kayano, but I could tell pretty quickly on the treadmill that the stability felt stronger. Definitely superior to the Kayano. I had tried on many shoes in the past and nothing felt as plush as the Kayano. Not even close. There was never a shoe that could flip me from the Kayano. Until now. I knew I was taking the Transcend 4 home with me after about 30 seconds on the treadmill. The ride is absolutely amazing on these shoes. The increased stability has done a ton to help my knees. I really like the fit. They're light and look great. As for the ride? These shoes are absolutely just as plush as the Kayano, and I am shocked I am saying this, but it is actually MORE comfortable overall. This shoe is absolutely a winner. I still love Asics and the thousands of miles that we've shared, but Brooks definitely has be running happy with this shoe.

            I went for a six mile jog the other day and my feet have never felt more comfortable. This is the first pair of Brooks I've ever purchased and I'm very pleased with how they're working out so far! This shoe has just the right blend of cushioning and stability for an overpronator such as myself. Also I'm not one for looks but the Superman colors sure are pretty! To everyone at Brooks I'm a very happy camper. Thank you for the Transcend 4!
